It's so light and comfy and will be perfect for the warm weather. It can also do double-duty for you because it will look great for day paired with flat sandals or wedges, and for evening paired with dressier accessories. Check it out!

Style it for day:



Micah Lace Up Flat Sandals: $19.00 (Lulus)


Achilles Gold Flat Ankle Strap Sandals: $20 (Lulus)

SO easy and SO cute. What more can you ask for. I know I'll be wearing this look non-stop this spring/summer for running around town on the weekend, trips to wineries, going out looks, even brunch paired with a little sweater over top!

Hope you all have a fabulous and restful weekend!

Big hug,

The Perfect Day to Night Outfit


Hi ladies! Happy Hump Day, hope everyone is having a great week so far!:) Here is a quick little outfit that I have been LOVING lately! So easy and SO cute! I am obsessed with this wrap top we just got into the boutique- here's why: it is the PERFECT completer piece!!! What's a completer piece? Well you know when you find an awesome sleeveless dress that you love, but then you get chilly in the office or need it to look a bit more conservative and cover your shoulders? Enter the completer piece. This wrap is so wonderful because it looks great worn over practically any little sheath dress to give an extra layer of warmth and coverage, yet at the same time looking completely pulled together.  Plus it's a wrap top so it highlights the smallest part of your waist, creating and hourglass figure, and the floats away from the tummy area so it's extremely figure-flattering. So pretty much the Holy Grail of tops here guys! No big deal- but ... it's a big deal! Haha;)

Pair with ANY little sheath dress and you've got yourself an instant outfit. I've been wearing mine with these two dresses from the boutique lately and it looks SO cute and works perfectly for the office:


This is also a FABULOUS look to transition from work to evening! It's dressy and cute enough for dinner or drinks after work, and you can easily take off the wrap top if you want to be a little more casual/show a little more skin.


Add a strappy sandal or pair of pumps, a great bag and some sunnies and you're out the door looking FAB in mere minutes:



How cute is this tote? It would make a great little work bag. Also this one is on sale now (half off)!


These sunglasses are one of my finds of the season! SO cute and SO affordable so you won't feel bad when you loose them/scratch them (me *cough*;)

Have a lovely day ladies!

Xoxo,
Emily

Rainy Night Going Out Look

Cobalt Striped High-Waisted Bodycon Skirt: $45.00 (Cosita Boutique)

Hi Ladies! We just got this skirt into the boutique- it is super cute but I'll be honest I was thinking about it as a work skirt but it's way too bodycon and bootylicious for that! Haha!;) Buuuuut it is still really cute and would work great for a going out look.  Here's how I'd style the it for one of those nights when it's rainy and a little chilly but you still want to look fabulous. This look would work for going out to dinner, going to hear some live music, mid-week date night, happy hour etc. etc!

Square Neck Crop Top: $6.99 (Forever 21)

The skirt is high-waisted, so it looks awesome paired with a black crop top! It could work equally well with a sleeveless crop top, an off-the-shoulder top, or even a cropped or wrap sweater.  So many options!

Mango Leather Biker Jacket: $199.99 *love this one too (and it's way cheaper!)

Of course I'd throw on your favorite moto jacket with this look- so cool an always a winner! Mango makes really great moto jackets, I have one I bought in Spain many many years ago and it's still a go-to piece for me to this day!

Reversible Oblong Fringe Scarf: $10.00 (Forever 21)

I love a cozy, nubby scarf with a look like this to warm it up.  Tuck the scarf into your jacket for a really cozy effect and a totally chic look!

Steve Madden Bellen Cross Body Bag: $39.99 (DSW)

I really like this little crossbody- a bit edgy and the patent gloss finish adds fun texture to the outfit.


Dual Ankle Strap Sandals: $21.59 (Charlotte Russe)

And you can't go wrong with a great pair of stilettos for evening! This pair with the double strap and little silver buckles would complete the look perfectly.

Hope everyone has a good day today!

Big hug!
Emily xoxo

A Simply Chic Work Outfit


Happy Monday ladies! What better way to start a new week than with a super cute new work dress!! I am absolutely LOVING this chic little sheath dress! it's so pretty for spring and the combination with this wrap top is perfection! You couldn't find an easier, more polished look that you can literally throw on in seconds!  That to me is what great style should be- fashion meets function, so I am ALL about this look!  


The dress is so cute on its own and could easily be worn to transition from a daytime event to an after-work networking event or dinner.  You can wear it with pumps, a strappy heeled sandal, a strappy flat sandal OR a wedge and it would look equally great with them all, so it's super versatile!


I'm also SO excited to introduce this top for the boutique! It is literally the perfect wrap top that can either be worn casually with jeans, or dressy with a sheath dress or pencil skirt for work, covering your shoulders and adding a light layer.  It's also extremely figure-flattering because it emphasizes the smallest part of your waist creating an hourglass figure! And because it's a wrap top you can size it to fit your waist exactly. Love love LOVE!


These sandals are great. I want them - lol:) I also think they're just low enough and dressy enough to work for an office environment.


To transition the look the evening, I 'd swap out the beige sandals for a pair of strappy black heels. These from H&M are a steal and would make a great addition to any wardrobe. They're one of those staple items that you'll never regret buying and are sure to get so much wear out of!



I love this bag to complete the look! It would be so cute for work and you could also wear it on the weekend with a more casual jeans and sweater/ jeans and tee look. Also a great price - I love DSW I get pretty much all of my daytime totes there and they hold up really well!

Strappy Wraparound Sandals: $17.90 (Forever 21)

Finally, if you're looking for a cute pair of flats to wear with this look I think these would look awesome!

That's it for me, hope everyone has a chic and lovely Monday!

Big hug,
Emily

Cute Casual Look for the Weekend


Happy Sunday y'all!  Hope everyone is having a fabulous and restful weekend!  So this may seem kind of silly, but one of the things I struggle with is coming up with cute casual outfits for low key weekend activities (walking the dog, running to the store etc. etc.) EVERY day is a runway in my book, so I want a cute outfit for all of that- thank you very much! Lol;) Annnyway, I overheard some ladies saying the other morning running errands "that's what I hate about spring, no one knows what to wear" lol lol - I think these problems are related so here goes a cute outfit idea for running around on the weekend in the spring weather! Plenty of layers so you can remove/add whatever you need to suit the weather that particular day. Enjoy!


The jacket above is the BEST investment piece for your wardrobe!!! I have two (embarrassed/guilty face;) but I literally wear them ALL the time! All year round! For casual, to and from work, etc. etc.! They go with anything and elevate any outfit.  Seriously one of those wardrobe staple/investment pieces that I really recommend to people because it's going to look really chic and you'll get SO much wear out of it. Any it will stay in style for ever so you'll have it for so many years to come. End rant lol! Anyway I love the coffee bean color above, and also LOVE this one in blue too - how cute!


I LOVE this type of scarf. H&M has great ones. They're super soft and lovely for any time you're feeling a little chilly and need that extra layer of warmth. I bought this one and it's such a beautiful blue color.


You CANNOT go wrong with a henley for the weekend as far as I'm concerned! I love how comfy and cute they are. Casual and effortless at its finest, yet pulled together looking (at least, more pulled-together looking than a tee and yoga pants- haha;)


Favorite jeans ever. Enough said.


I just got these from Target and can say first hand that they are the ULTIMATE cute white sneaker for running around town!  LOVE LOVE LOVE them- these are the type of shoes I know I'll live in this spring/summer and for the price I'm probably going to go back and get a second pair (lol;)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend ladies!!!

xoxo,
Emily

The Cutest Espadrilles for Spring



OK you guys it's time to get serious. Because today we're going to talk about one of my FAVORITE shoe topics: ESPADRILLES!!! What? Espadrilles you say? Yes. Basically the chicest sandals ever invented. Espadrilles have been making summer feet look chic since goodness knows when and will continue to do so forever more! They literally never go out of style. And just get cooler every year. Don't believe me? CHECK THESE OUT:

Perfect for daytime cuteness, paired with skinny jeans, a skirt, a little sundress or shorts:


Also great for a dressy-casual night out:

Wide Fit Espadrille Wedges: $40 (Asos) *If you want to try them on in a store, these from Express are almost identical, but a tad pricier.

Look at this sweet pink pair I found! That color!


I love them in the black/white too tbh:


Y'all please don't sleep on Payless. They always have some cute styles and don't sleep on that BOGO action either! Style AND a steal j/s:


Also comes in PINK! Adorbs:


These ones from Old Navy would also be great for day/work:


Ok and last but not least let's talk about the metallic options! Living for it. So cute:


Peace, love and espadrilles! And happy Friday to all:)

Xoxo,
Emily

Outfit of the Day: The Perfect Little Black (Striped) Dress


Hi Ladies! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their week so far:) I don't know about you but I am ALWAYS looking for cute, yet office-appropriate looks for work that make me feel young and stylish and not 100 years old!!! Lol and at the same time they have to be comfortable for a busy day of running around and hustlin. So I was super excited when I found this cute little number for the boutique! It's made of the softest tee-shirt like material and felt like I was wearing my PJ's all day yet looked a LOT chicer! So... basically mission accomplished! 

Classic Trench Coat in Black: $87.00 (Asos)

I love that this dress makes it so easy to pull yourself together in the morning too.  Just pair it with a great pair of flats or pumps, a chic trench and off you go!  Amazing.  It's also one of those pieces that are so classic and will never go out of style so you can wear it again, and again, and again:)  

      
Classic Trench Coat in Camel: $87.00 (Asos)

I am trench coat OBSESSED at the moment- trench coats are the IDEAL jacket for spring/summer and they have such a crisp, pulled-together look that gives an air of sophistication. I love that it's a completely timeless look that will never go out of style. I have a sort of oxblood colored trench coat I bought years ago at Target of all places and I collect compliments on it year after year so definitely a fantastic piece to invest in! Based on this success I'm now looking for a new trench coat and I looked HIGH and LOW and thought for the price and stylishness these ones from Asos were the best bet. If you want to go a little pricier, this one from Macy's also looks fab and comes in a bunch of different colors.

Let's talk about pumps baby: another item I'm always in search of is the perfect pair of pumps! These Steve Madden ones are my current favorite pair and I must say they are surprisingly comfortable, but definitely as I like to say still a "sit and look cute" shoe, rather than a walk around all day shoe if you catch my drift;)

I also think these by Sam Edelman would look really sharp with the dress as an alternative! Red pumps would be fun too. So many options:)


Journee Collection Dorsy Flat: $29.99 (DSW) 

Also love these flats- how cute! These are perfect too:


Cole Haan Elsie Flat: $89.99 (DSW)


And last but not least I'd finish the look off with a classic tote!  This one also comes in ALL the colors so I for one will be stocking up- lol;)


*Also have been on the lookout for the perfect cat-eye sunnies lately and am loving these after trying a bunch! They are seriously cute and stylish AND an AMAZING price too! Scorrrreee:)


Have a great day ladies! 

xoxo,
Emily
